    "Terrible Experience"

    January 2, 2013  |   By meauxbunny

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    I thought I had found a great program. Fast downloads, good selection...

    Cons

    YOU DON'T GET TO KEEP WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

    Summary

    I was charged a monthly service fee even tho I didn't sign up for that, just the free downloads, and then purchased a few mp3s. Only to find out later when I tried to upload the mp3s that I purchased, that they were no longer there! Even though they were all listed as "purchased", I kept getting a message saying that I couldn't upload them because they weren't. Most importantly, my bank account said they were. THEN I was told that there was nothing they could do about it because the money I paid goes directly to the artist and that it could not be refunded! Needless to say... I am NOT happy with imesh. Save your money. Don't use it.

    "Jury still out.......on the fence....whatever"

    December 25, 2012  |   By 1fastesteddie

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    Great song and artist selection. Downloads fast. Nice interface creating new song list.

    Cons

    What's up with trying to pirate your home search? After trying the freebies (impressed) I tried to download to my Ipod. So, I decided to spring for the 9.95 per mo. charge. Good news? No! Still could not download to Ipod but it would download (some not all) to my Asus 300TF. Then, I upgraded to the so called premium subscription at a higher monthly......Surprise! Still will not download to my Ipod. The real pisser is that their first screen touts how "easy" it is to download to Apple products. "it's even easier and faster than using Itunes". That is BS! After signing up for their premium a pop up informs that my Ipod must not be compatible. Very deceptive advertising. If a solution is not forthcoming, I will find them "incompatible" and flush!

    Summary

    I would agree with all of the above. But, as I have stated, I will try to find a solution before I eliminate the install. Hopefully, it will be something as simple as a file format difference. I will post additional info. as discovered.

    Updated on Jan 24, 2013

    As promised, here is my update. I agree with others that suggest to not download this app. My experience was not a simple file format. When it became obvious that I should just delete the program my nightmare started. Eventually, I had to do a restore to accomplish this process. Save yourself......you do not want this program that's loaded wit

    "Very, very good site."

    July 12, 2012  |   By ACoW3121

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    There are tons of songs! A lot are by upcoming artists. You have Nicki Minaj, Drake, Bieber, Taylor Swift, The Offspring, Metallica, etc. Just to name a few. You don't have to pay for the service either. The "Premium" search, is the same as the regular search, but it's the same thing, just better quality music, and closer to what you were looking for. They even have music videos which I thought was really cool. So far I have downloaded over 13 albums, and over 50 singles. So hands down one of the best sites that I've used. No Trojans, no cookies, no problems. Just fast, and easily obtainable music. 5 out of 5.

    Cons

    1.) Some songs aren't on there. Very few that you can't find.
    2.) It does try to make iMesh your primary search engine (which can get annoying).
    3.) I made a huge music file, and it basically tore it apart and just re-named itself iMesh music and then listed it by the artist. Sometimes if there is an artist FEATURING another artist, it will put it under the FEATURED artist. Can get confusing.
    4.) The music is given in .wma format and not .mp3.

    With all of these problems I would still give it a 3 out of 5

    Summary

    All in all, this "site" is good if you just want to get some music for a quick trip on the road. You do need to know how to change up files from .wma to .mp3's though. It's a nice little site that gives you free music. I recommended it to a few other of my colleges. Though I said I give it a 5 out of 5 in the pros, and a 3 out of 5 in the cons. That comes down to a 4 out of 5 which is very good. I will continue to use it until music corporations make them take it down.

    "NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS"

    February 7, 2012  |   By MariaErlinda

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    NONE whatsoever!!!

    Cons

    THIS IS A BAIT & SWITCH; ALL THEY WANT IS THAT YOU USE THEM AS YOUR SEARCH ENGINE. Once you download it, it becomes a parasite in your computer and it takes a lot of doing this and doing that to get it extirpate it --like a malign tumor-- off your computer. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS. There should be laws to punish operators like Imesh. I'll will write my two U.S. Senators and my U.S. Representative about it. I will also approach the District Attorney about it.

    Summary

    Imesh IS bad news; NEVER DOWNLOAD IT!!!

    "I HATE IMESH!"

    January 2, 2012  |   By Oliviaa1996

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    YOU CAN FIND SOME MUSIC

    Cons

    SO HORRIBLE! DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT. ONCE I DOWNLOADED IT I HAD TO SEARCH FOR DIRECTIONS TO UNINSTALL IT WHICH TOOK ME AN HOUR UNTIL FINALLY FINDING THE ANSWER ( THANK YOU YAHOO ANSWERS ). EVERY SONG I WOULD SEARCH FOR , INSTEAD OF IT BEING THE SONG IT TITLED IT WAS ACTUALLY AN ADVERTISMENT OR A TOTAL COMPLETLY DIFFERENT SONG. I JUST THINK THIS PROGRAM IS A WAY TO GET YOUR BLOOD BOILING.

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWLOAD WHATEVER YOU DO. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A FREE MUSIC WEBSITE I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ONE IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT MANY REVIEWS TO SEE WHICH ONE TO GET. HOPE THIS INFO HELPS YOU.

    "Very Good - but not excellent"

    August 2, 2011  |   By roto1

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    Fast finds; Fast downloads; does not affect PC performance

    Cons

    Wish library organization were more like MediaMonkey - ie. the artist tree would expand and be shown as a list vs. a huge space per artist.
    Could also use a function that lists duplicate songs for fixing.

    "Once installed, Very hard to Remove frome your Computer"

    February 18, 2011  |   By dkostella

    Version: iMesh 8.0

    Pros

    Never had time to find out.

    Cons

    Too many Pop-Ups, adds un-WANTED Toolbar and shortcuts to desktop. Slows down computer because of Pop-Ups..

    Summary

    Locks Up in "Deleting Files" if you try to remove it.
    Went through "Add / Delete Program" and it Locked up for hours.
    Thank God for System Restore! Make sure you "Create a Restore Point" before you install this. :( Thumbs Down
